    The Gamecube loading function of the Wii is controlled by the mIOS; when you run a GCN game it loads into a low-level emulator mode where all additional inputs (SD card, USB ports, sensor bar) are completely ignored.

    The cMIOS that allows Gamecube disc backup launching could theoretically implement support for a USB drive, but it would be much, much harder than it was to implement HDD support for Wii games. There's nothing planned on that yet.
